The stabilizer shaft is contructed and works in a similar way to the canard forward. Together, and in concert with variable speed on each shaft they replaced conventional rudders, and provided enhanced stability in rough seas.

Looking aft just behind the frame can be seen the cooling heat exchangers. Behind them, the grey main motor can be seen.
